Hulu Plus Now Available to Select Androids
Hulu today announced that its Hulu Plus service is available to the Android platform for the first time with a new application. Hulu Plus for Android allows subscribers to browse through and stream the video content they want directly from their Android handset. The application works with just six handsets at launch (Nexus One, Nexus S, HTC Inspire 4G, Motorola Droid 2, Motorola Droid X, and the Motorola Atrix), though Hulu said it will add compatibility with more handsets throughout the year. The application is free to download, but Hulu Plus costs $7.99 per month.
The Samsung Nexus S offers a pure Google experience on a slick Android phone. There's no carrier apps, no interface tweaks, but is there enough to satisfy buyers?
Phone Scoop takes AT&T's first "4G" phone for a whirl. While the hardware and system performance impress, does the Inspire's mobile broadband prowess live up to the "4G" marketing hype?
Phone Scoop goes in-depth with the Motorola Atrix 4G, a dual-core Android smartphone that can transform into a netbook replacement with the laptop dock accessory.
The latest version of Android offers a lot of performance upgrades and some new whiz-bang features. Phone Scoop takes it for a spin on the Galaxy Nexus.
